It kind of reminded me of dinner at my grandma's, which was high-fat, but very down-to-earth. In this post I'll share some of the dishes I had in Slovakia [...]

A merry Christmas in North Jutland

We spent Christmas in North Jutland at my uncle's this year. In many ways it's been a wonderful Christmas, but I've also had some mixed emotions. It's the first year that my little brother (wasn't supposed to) spend Christmas with us, and one of my best friends´ mom passed away this Christmas. It's difficult to block out things like these, even when everything [...]

Why the world would end without Danish Christmas food

In Denmark, we love to eat. Eating is pretty much what we do all day this time of year. We have so many various dishes and drinks depending on which part of Denmark you're from.
